Senior research fellow Christopher Vandome covers the elections from Johannesburg and answers questions

On 29 May 2024, South Africans will vote in an election that is widely seen as its most significant since democratic rule. 

Polls suggest that the ANC may receive less than 50 per cent of the vote for the first time since 1994, signalling the likelihood of multi-party government. 

The result could put to the test the constitutional principles of cooperative government, and will have significant implications for the nation and the region.

Senior research fellow Christopher Vandome covers the elections from Johannesburg and answers  questions in this quick-fire session assessing the intricacies of South Africa’s elections, the potential for coalition governments, the domestic and regional implications, and much more.
